MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - One man has been charged with his second offense of criminal domestic violence after an altercation at a Myrtle Beach resort.
When police officers arrived at the Palace Resort on Sept. 14, they found a woman in the entrance with blood on her clothes.
The woman admitted she stabbed 49-year-old Brian Harry Steffens while he was assaulting her.
The knife she used was found on a luggage cart, and she was handcuffed while police worked to figure out what happened.
After locating Steffens in a room on the 17th floor, they noticed a stab wound on his left side. when asked what happened, he muttered that it was all his fault and "Put it on me," the police report states.
After EMS transported Mr. Steffens to the hospital, officers began to question the female victim. She detailed the assault which began when Steffens returned back to their room.
He had been out all night, and their verbal spat turned physical quickly. The victim claims Steffens knocked the coffee out of her hand, grabbed her by the hair and bent her over the sink. That's when she grabbed a steak knife from beside the sink and cut him.
After escaping his grasp, the woman says she got in the elevator, went downstairs and called police.
Further investigation led police to release the woman and seek a warrant for Steffens, to be served after he was released from the hospital's care.
Brian Steffens was arrested and charged with second offense criminal domestic violence.
